    I am in need of gps coordinates for a few locations in Lake Meade. We have boat with a portable GPS. We are looking at diving at Rock Slide and Cavern in the Black Canyon Area and the Tortuga. If any body could help, I would really appreciate it.
    Thanks photorandy

    I'll forward to paintsnow and see what he can tell us, this was a discussion at our last LVDivers' meeting.

    It's only impossible.

    Yeah, most of the dive sites are off shore, there are good ones from a boat though. Good luck!

Water depth for most of the dive ranges from 30 feet to as deep as 130 feet.
    Bottom composition is rock and as you go toward the dam you will encounter pot shelf rock formations with plenty of fish and more Dam construction remnants. In one area there is a cable that is believed to be stretched across to the Arizona side but it drops off into the abyss beyond 130 feet

    This is triple-refined grade A scuba-porn!

    Paintsnow, thanks for posting this - I had no idea Meade was so attractive a dive spot. I really may need to plan a trek...
